NBA Finals Recap: Raptors Close out Warriors in Game 6 victory

The Toronto Raptors are NBA champions. With a 114-110 victory in Game 6, an Oracle Arena sendoff in Oakland, the Raptors clinched a 4-2 series victory behind Kyle Lowry (26 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists), Pascal Siakam (26 points, 10 rebounds) and Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard (22 points, 6 rebounds).

Leonard joins Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and LeBron James as the only players to win Finals MVP for two different franchises. The game turned for late in the third quarter when Klay Thompson injured his left knee late in the third quarter; he was eventually diagnosed with a torn ACL.

In the loss, the Warriors were led by Andre Iguodala, who led Golden State in scoring with 22 points in 32 minutes. With a chance to win the game on a late three-point attempt, Stephen Curry ended the night with 21 points and seven assists.
